Reasons why I love Static

A good hero works well with others

Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was

And it’s not the last time either. You see it here

and here

he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.

He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help

I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.

and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…

Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.

And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.

Static knows when to fight

but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand

and sure, he jokes around

but he also knows how important the work he does is

and he also knows what happens if he messes up

His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.

and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues

they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.

They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.

Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.

“It’s about getting to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.”

Sometimes I like to put on the tsukkomi mode when I read chapters and...

…Sometimes it really turns out to be fun.

“Yeah right!”

 … Wait

Vincent… tell me you didn’t…?

Reasons I am eternally grateful to Horrible Histories:
  • Portrayed Mary Tudor as well-rounded and sympathetic, noted her good points as well as her bad, and portrayed her as never intending a lot of the bad things that happened during her reign, instead of just portraying her as a pure evil demon queen
  • (Also gave Mary Tudor a catchy song that featured my fave HH song lyric: “But there’s no need to worry if at first you don’t succeed”)
  • Portrayed Anne of Cleves as not ugly and quite pretty, and a nice person,but her and Henry just not liking each other in that way
  • Never once had Henry call her ugly or unnattractive
  • Portrayed Henry and Anne of Cleves divorcing on good and friendly mutual terms
  • Seriously
  • I legit cried
  • Four for you Horrible Histories
  • You go Horrible Histories

Now if the children’s comedy can get it right, why can’t serious dramas and proper adult documentaries?
